Ducati unveils updated SuperSport 950 motorcycle

November 19, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The Italian Ducati SuperSport 950 motorcycle has received an updated look in the spirit of the Panigale model. The motorcycle also boasts an expanded list of technologies.

With a starting price of $ 13,095, the SuperSport is an affordable entry point into the Italian sports brand Ducati. For 2021, the bike has received several key upgrades, including new technologies and a new face inspired by the Ducati Panigale motorcycle.

The third World Première series took place at Ducati on 18 November 2020. The event included the presentation of the new Panigale V4 SP, the TK-01RR e-bike and of course the updated SuperSport.

Ducati has redesigned the model and added some Panigale DNA to simplify the family’s appearance. The front optics are shaped like the one introduced on the V4, complete with signature LED strip, and the fairing now has gill-shaped flanks.

At first glance, the entry-level sportbike has barely changed. 937cc Testastretta two-cylinder engine cm now complies with Euro 5 standards, power indicators remained the same – 110 hp. (93.5 Nm).

The engine sits inside a tubular steel chassis that is attached to a pair of 17-inch Y-spoke alloy wheels and Marzocchi suspension. The SuperSport now weighs 184.16 kg.

The 2021 version of the motorcycle is equipped with a Bosch 6-axis inertial measurement unit that detects the bike’s position on the road and monitors systems such as cornering ABS, traction control and wheel control. The SuperSport also features electronic gear shifting as well as three driving modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), selectable via a 4.3-inch TFT display.

The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 now starts at $ 13,495 and the SuperSport 950 S from $ 15,795. Deliveries are due to start in March 2021.

Not so long ago, we wrote that a Ducati motorcycle of ex-Top Gear leaders appeared on sale. At the end of this month, at a Charterhouse auction, the Ducati 851, which was owned by two former Top Gear presenters, will be auctioned off at a Charterhouse auction, originally owned by James May and then sold to Richard Hammond.
